Smooth round tomato

The smooth round tomato

As already mentioned in other articles concerning the tomato, this is a very widespread herbaceous plant in Italy and in other parts of the world; it can reach a height of two meters but, due to the not very robust stem, it needs supports to develop. The root is composed of the taproot and other smaller ones that develop laterally. The flowers of the tomato plant are yellow in color and grow on the stem and branches.

The smooth round tomato it is a variety used above all to prepare salads and on the market we can find them of various sizes, in clusters or single, always of a very bright red. The smooth round tomato it appeared on our market during the eighties; it is very consumed and appreciated as it has a very consistent pulp and is kept for a long time.

Environment and exposure

The plant of the round tomato smooth, to develop many fruits and of good quality, it needs a warm temperate climate, good sun exposure. This tomato can withstand short cold periods, but it would be better never to subject it to freezing or very cold temperatures. The ideal temperature for cultivation can reach twenty-six degrees.


The tomato needs a very worked, deep, fertile and above all well-drained soil. When the plant is adult it can resist even in particularly acidic or basic soils.

Sowing and transplanting

The multiplication of the tomato takes place by seed which can start in a covered place or directly in the open field.

In case of starting from seedbeds or greenhouses, therefore in sheltered and possibly heated places, the optimal temperature should be twenty-one degrees. The soil must be suitable for planting. After about two weeks the seedlings will have sprouted and will have to be placed in a container with peat for about a month, after this operation they can be placed in the pot (usually around March-April),

The best time to sow in the open field is from March to May. The new plants will be transplanted when they have produced three or four leaves at a distance of about fifty centimeters.

In general, tomato seedlings are transplanted in the open field towards the end of May; they will be buried about three centimeters no more. After this operation they will have to be equipped with supports in order to develop at their best.


Like the other types of tomato, even the smooth round one needs a constant but not excessive supply of water. It is a plant that fears drought but also water stagnation. As mentioned in other articles regarding the tomato, care must always be taken, during the watering phase, not to wet the leaves and fruits.


During the working phase of the soil, it will be necessary to make mature manure, subsequently fertilizing with phosphorus and potassium. In case of nitrogen being covered.


The collection of the round tomato smooth is carried out in the period between July and September. This operation is done manually and is done when the tomatoes have reached a bright red color.

Diseases and parasites

The smooth round tomato, like other tomatoes, is very subject to root and collar rot. Excessive water intake can also cause abrasions on the fruit.

It is very afraid of the Colorado beetle and the agrotid which, through the deposition of its larvae, damages the roots of the newly born seedlings.

2 thoughts on "Tomato"

Hi I'm preparing the ground for planting tomatoes and a garden with reclaimed earth I dug it two days ago so early March
Now I got the bags of manure but reading your guide it seems that it is too late to fertilize how do you advise me to proceed to be able to plant in early April?

Hi Fabio, proceed as you are doing, the manure is however already mature as manure can be fine anyway. Make sure you lighten the soil well, make it nice and crumbly. Compost is pretty good too.

do not plant the seeds directly in the ground, use a seedbed protected from the elements and then plant the already large seedlings in the ground.
